Rudy cares so much for his friends, that when he sticks up for them when he’s not supposed to, he is aware of the punishment that could happen. Rudy sticks up Tommy by sticking up for him when Franz Deutscher is yelling at him because he kept marching when he said to stop. Rudy stuck up for Tommy and told Franz that Tommy has bad hearing and Franz made Rudy run. Rudy also protects his friends and I know this because in the book, Rudy comes and grabs Leisel when she is getting whipped, and covers her. Rudy takes the pain that then follows.
They put together their money to spontaneously purchase the car on a trip to Winnipeg. This impulsive decision to blow all of their money on a convertible car symbolizes the optimism that both of the brothers had after enduring discouraging catastrophes. Erdrich chose to make the car a convertible because much like Henry and Lyman’s personalities, a convertible is free and youthful. When they initially get the car, they drive it up to Alaska to bring Susy home and the car is in tip-top shape, much like their brotherhood. After they return to the reservation Henry gets drafted and leaves for the war in Vietnam.

He finds himself meeting with Randy, Bob's best friend. Pony is suppried when Randy tells him that he's sorry for Pony and how Bob's parents never gave him limits.

George was being nice to Candy because he was disabled and he was also his friend. John Steinbeck wasn’t the only one who used sacrifice in his book. S.E. Hinton used examples of sacrifice in The Outsiders also mainly between Pony and his brothers. Darry really wanted Pony to have a good childhood.
In the first place, Pony had a talk with Cherry Valance, a Soc, and they discussed eachothers’ problems. Cherry said: “Things are rough all over.” As a result, Pony started to realize that the Socs have problems too and they’re human too. Additionally, Ponyboy said: “It seemed funny to me that Socs - if these girls were any example - were just like us.” Pony said this because he was starting to realize that the Socs weren’t so different after all. Likewise, Randy, another Soc came and talked to Pony after Bob’s death and they talked about Bob. For that reason, Randy told Pony about his opinion of Bob.
Barry’s unique use of the simile in paragraph two shows us that Barry thinks that men helping women “around the kitchen [are as useless] as ill-trained Labrador[s]”. Barry compares men to ill-trained dogs to illustrate the idea that once a woman gets used a man’s sightly antics in the kitchen she will likely become irritated and try to shoo him away just as one would with a cute dog that got irritating. Barry’s encouragement to the stereotype that all men can’t cook is important to show because it puts women on a pedestal because of their ‘natural born’ talent in the kitchen. If men are considered dogs of the house, boiled down, women must be their rightful owners. Lastly, Barry uses another simile to drive his point home, when explaining how he “feel[s] like
Henry desires that a fairy had replaced Hal and Hotspur at birth, so that Hotspur were really his son and Hal the son of another. This quote is important for several deductions. It indicates the rivalry of Harry and Hotspur, and it helps authorize Henry’s exhausted, troubled condition. Additionally, it lets the readers know that Harry is mainly considered a disappointment, and, by introducing both Harry and Hotspur as potential son figures for Henry, it installs the concept of spitting images in the play. For example, “By being seldom seen, I could not stir/ But like a comet I was wond’red at,/ That men would tell their children, “This is he”;/ Others would say, “Where, Which is Bullingbrook?”/ And then I stole all courtesy from heaven,/ And dress’d myself in such humility/ That I did pluck allegiance from men's hearts,/ Loud shouts and salutations from their mouths”(III.ii.45-53).
In this story, there are symbols of importance & bravery, father figure & inspiration, and death. A symbol is something that has a meaning beyond itself. In Ray Bradbury’s story, Joby, a drummer boy, symbolizes importance and bravery, the general symbolizes a father figure and inspiration, and The Battle of Shiloh symbolizes death. Joby,the drummer boy of Shiloh, is a symbol of importance and bravery. In the text, Bradbury states, “If he, Joby, beat slow tomorrow, the heart would beat slow in the men.” (Bradbury 171) This proves Joby is important because if Joby would beat the drum slow, then the soldiers would run, fight, and shoot slow and the men would die, but if he beats the drum fast then they will shoot,fight, and run fast.
Candy and his dog have been through everything together. “Well—hell, I had his so long, had him since he was a pup (Steinbeck 44).” This passage suggests that Candy considers his dog as the best friend that he has ever had and that he doesn’t want to lose him. When his dog dies, Candy feels that he wants to do something different with his life. George and Lennie are talking about the farm they are dreaming of when Candy pipes in and says that he wants to help (Steinbeck 59). This example suggests that he has done the same thing his whole life and has now decided to try something new.
The power to heal Bartleby’s leprosy is vested in the narrator as he is a boundary keeper of society: “Bartleby’s depiction as a leper – his isolation and rejection – that must be healed” (Zlogar 517). Bartleby’s isolation and rejection from society characterize him as a leper. The narrator can bring change in society that would accept Bartleby, who is unclean, as clean which would heal
